Obituary

Timothy “Tim” Alan Fraser, 68 of New Smyrna Beach, FL passed away peacefully at home on September 26, 2021 following a lengthy and challenging battle with esophageal cancer. He was surrounded by family, close friends, and his beloved dogs, Graci Lou and Skittles.

Tim was born in Warsaw, NY on April 12, 1953 to the late Daniel Fraser and the late Shirley (Manwarren) Olinger. He graduated from Corning West High School in 1971 and attended Valparaiso University. He returned to Corning after the flood of 1972 and started his career in the hospitality industry at The Lodge On The Green in Painted Post, NY.  Within 15 years, his skill and ambition led him up the ranks to General Manager. In 1988 he relocated to Cleveland, OH to manage the Airport Days Inn.  It was here that he met the love of his life, Cyndi. Tim and Cyndi married in April of 1989 and returned to Corning where he purchased B&B Ice Company. During the first few years of building his new business, Tim served as tourism coordinator for the Finger Lakes South region. In 1999 he sold the business and moved to New Smyrna Beach, FL and briefly returned to the hospitality industry as a hotel administrator. Tim’s interest in finance and the stock market led him to his final and most beloved career endeavor when he joined the Thrivent Financial family in 2005.

Tim is survived by his loving wife of 32 years Cyndi (Jakabcic) Fraser, his daughter Jamie Fraser (Mohamed Abdullah) of Orlando, FL, daughter Laurie Spear of Millport, NY, and grandchildren Ayden “Mickey” Spear, Adalynn “Angel” Spear, and Sophia “Sophiecakes” Abdullah.  He is also survived by his sister, Sherry Fraser (John Pulvermiller) of North River, NY; sister Lisa Horner of Mount Vernon, NY; brother Thomas Fraser of Hampton, VA; brother Michael Fraser of Haywood, VA; sister-in-law Jeanne Hardy of Morehead City, NC; brother-in-law Samuel (Margret) Jakabcic Jr.  of Brunswick, OH; father-in-law Samuel Jakabcic Sr. of Brunswick, OH and brother-in-law Stephen Hambley of Brunswick, OH; fourteen Nieces and Nephews, seven Great Nieces and Nephews, many aunts, uncles and cousins, and life-long friend Gary Paul.

Tim was also preceded in death by his mother-in-law Elizabeth Jakabcic; sister-in-law Deborah Jakabcic; sister-in-law Susan Hambley; brother-in-law Thomas Horner and great niece Celeste Kimber.

Tim was a faithful man who loved the Lord, his family, church, community, and the members he served at Thrivent.  He was a member of the John P. Eaton American Legion Post 746 in Corning and served briefly in the US Army. Tim has served as church council president, church elder, and could always be counted on to financially support special church projects and ministries. He volunteered with his wife at the American Cancer Society and assisted at Habitat for Humanity build projects.

Tim enjoyed golf, watching the Cleveland Indians, gardening, walking on the beach, cooking, and doting over his dogs. He loved classic cars and gave one of his Camaros to each of his three grandchildren to restore. He will be remembered for his wisdom, confidence, generosity, strength, and entrepreneurial spirit.

A memorial service is scheduled for 4:00 P.M. on September 30, 2021 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church 1715 Taylor Rd, Port Orange, FL 32128.  It was Tim’s wish that any memorial tributes be made in the form of charitable donations to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church or the church’s preschool, Small Steps Academy.

    Cynthia and all of Tim's family,
    We had the pleasure of knowing Tim as our Thrivent Agent for the past years.
    Tim was one of God's bright lights among us who had the ability to become not just an acquaintance, but a friend from the moment you met him.
    A gentle and caring being, Tim always asked about us, our family and grandchildren.
    Tim helped us through the shocking and sudden loss of my son just four months ago.
    We knew Tim was fighting medically, and we gave what little support we could.
    We were happy to hear that Tim had retired, and prayed or his recovery.
    It is with heavy human sorrow that we share your grieve for the loss of Tim's earthly presence,
    but we know that he is held in the Love and Light of God.
    May Tim's imprint on the lives of all he loved continue to guide us with Grace and Peace.
    RoseAnne and Brian
